A Quiet Place

Critics Consensus

A Quiet Place artfully plays on elemental fears with a ruthlessly intelligent creature feature that's as original as it is scary -- and establishes director John Krasinski as a rising talent.

  • Tight editing builds the suspense in this excellent horror film.

  • A polished slice of fear inducing genre fare. Creating horror by relying on craftsmanship is a risk when your career is still young, but it pays off in spades here.

  • [A] quiet, dark, and chilling film to experience.

    October 17, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A Quiet Place is an all-timer, a modern masterpiece that feels, even while you're watching it, like the kind of film that's quickly going to make its way into your regular rotation.

    October 1, 2019 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…
  • It is so clever in its simplicity, building tension so excruciatingly well, that I was left a quivering, shaking, giggling, freaked-out, hot mess. Brilliant.

    Shrewd storytelling by John Krasinski and his fellow writers make this horror film a must. There's plenty of well mined technique here to draw viewers in and create empathy for the movie's characters.

    Emily Blunt and John Krasinski star in the horror thriller A Quiet Place. Set in a post-apocalyptic future, a family attempts to live in complete silence to avoid viscous, deadly creatures that are attracted to noise. Both Blunt and Krasinski give really strong performances and do an excellent job at expressing their thoughts and feelings through their facial and body movements. Additionally, Krasinski's directing style does an impressive job at setting an atmospheric and foreboding tone. And the mystery of what the creatures are and the setup of the post-apocalyptic world are especially well-done. A frightening horror film, A Quiet Place is incredibly intense and full of suspense.

    95% on Rotten Tomatoes? Are you shhhhh . . . We're in a wery, wery quiet pwace wight now. It's a world where you can't cough, can't hiccup, can't even fart for fear you'll be splattered all over the landscape. Woe be unto those who suffer from sleep apnea in this place, for unless you're an electrical whiz and know how to get some juice flowing -- quietly, no generators allowed -- to power a very quiet CPAP machine, your snoring will surely be the literal death of you in this soundless post-apocalyptic hell-hole of a world we now inhabit. You know, thinking about it, no farting anymore would be a good thing. I hate it when someone cuts one loose without warning and you have to hold your breath forever -- just as if these sound-seeking alien killers were nearby and you didn't want them to hear you breathing. Fart in this world, and you are one dead flatulator. No chili for you! Also no screaming if you drive a nail through your foot or give birth, either. No knuckle-cracking or gum-snapping, or stomach growling, or sobbing, or projectile vomiting, or stubbing of toes, or . . . Sneezing? Out. Allergy sufferers will be some of the first to get off-ed. Oh, and while I'm making a list of don'ts and checking it twice, don't ever use a condom when you have sex. Why? Because it isn't irresponsible of you first, to bring a child into a world like this, and second, it's a sure sign of love if you have to stuff the baby in an airtight box with a little oxygen mask so that if it cries the aliens won't hear it and smear it. It goes without saying, of course, that if you do have sex, contraceptives or not, you darn well better not enjoy it to the point where you moan or, heaven forbid, cry out at the height of passion. Heard of the "little death"? That there'll be the big one. About thirty minutes into this horror of a story, I wanted to scream, but I knew there weren't really any aliens like the ones in this movie lurking about, so there was no chance in hades that one would hear me and come wipe my out of my misery.

    Whether or not A Quiet Place scares you will I suppose be something of an objective thing. For me, it wasn't so much a scary experience, but it was an extremely tense experience. There was a fairly consistent hold-your-breath tone to it, and quit a few "oh s***" moments, that kept me consistently engaged and made the movie go by really quickly. The core of the movie is really about the family though, and fortunately you absolutely buy them as a family and all the actors (even the kids) do a great job. It's a very original film, builds its world great, and moves quickly with a great sense of tension. I can't quite give it a perfect score though. Why not? I'm not sure, but I guess it just didn't "wow" me the way some other modern horror classics have. Sort of a weird critique, but not even really a criticism, it's still a great film.
